Hamamatsu Castle is known as Shusse (“Success”) Castle,
a stepping stone to 300-year of Tokugawa rule.

Despite its location in the center of Hamamatsu, this Park is an oasis of greenery where residents can come to relax.

In addition to Hamamatsu Castle, it features Japanese gardens, a central lawn area, and more.
